The Gateway Research Committee has been working with Ron Koehler, editor of the “Hiawatha Daily World” newspaper, on a project designed to elicit information on the St. Joe Road from the northeast Kansas Public. Ron wrote an article about the trail and published it as a front-page feature in the April 13 edition of his newspaper. Accompanying the article was a detailed Brown County map, showing the route of the St. Joe Road, according to present day information.
